Bordeaux vs Montpellier Ligue 1 Betting Tips
The hosts still have hopes of avoiding relegation as it is a tight race for survival at the bottom. A win in this game could push them above the red zone but will they overcome a more ambitious Montpellier? Here are the best three predictions and free betting tips for this Ligue 1 match.
BTTS @ 7/10 (1.70)
There is a possibility both of these teams will score in this game. Looking at how they have progressed so far, both teams are vulnerable defensively. For example, Bordeaux is now winless in six straight Ligue 1 games, during which they bagged two draws and conceded a goal in each of those games. On the flip-side, Montpellier lost four of their last six Ligue 1 games and won only one of those. The visitors have to worry about their defense in this game against a team that is fighting for survival.
The hosts to score the first goal @ 4/5 (1.80)
With 9 games to the end of the season, this promises to be a difficult game for both Bordeaux and Montpellier. We expect the hosts to be particularly involved in their quest for goals and survival points. The reverse leg ended 3-3, and so, backing both sides to score makes sense as well given that these teams have retrogressed defensively.

Bordeaux vs Montpellier Game Preview, Analysis and Tips
Bordeaux has some glimmer of hope in their quest to avoid relegation heading into this game. The hosts are currently last in Ligue 1 but only four points from safety. The 19th placed Metz is only a point above Bordeaux, so winning this game will be huge for the hosts.
Historically, this matchup has been competitive given that both teams boast 8W and 4D in the last twenty meetings.
It is safe to say, Montpellier are safe in the Ligue 1 table and while getting a place in top five looks like a distant quest with nine games to play, winning more games is pivotal at this point. We expect a relatively even game as both sides seek more points to remain in Ligue 1 next season. The hosts will be keen to make the most of home support to at least get a point or win the game altogether.
Bordeaux predicted lineup: Costil, Gregersen, Marcelo, Ahmedhodzic, Pembele, Onana, Guilavogui, Mensah, Adli and Hwang.
Montpellier predicted lineup: Omlin, Ristic, Thuler, Cozza, Souquest, Chotard, Ferri, Mollet, Savanier, Sambia and Wahi.
